"I can think of few authors whose writing I enjoy more than those of Elizabeth
Goudge. She has the rare ability to express herself unforgettably and is able
to transport you into another world and time, in which you find yourself immensely
enriched and entertained."
--Ruth Bell Graham
Elizabeth Goudge was a British novelist (1900-1984) born into the home of an Anglican
priest and theologian. She wrote children's books as well as novels--her Green Dolphin
Street was made into an Academy-Award-winning film. In style and themes she parallels
English writers such as the creator of the Miss Read series as well mirroring the spiritual
depth found in George MacDonald's Victorian novels. She won the Carnegie Award in 1947
for The Little White Horse, J. K. Rowling's favorite children's book.

I came back here to read the other review and decided to try again but still couldnt get into it. My husband had exactly the same response. So this may be an unfair review since we did not read the entire book.
grace755 Stars Out Of 5Good to Read Over and Over AgainFebruary 17, 2015grace75Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had a PB copy of this book in the 70's which I purchased overseas, with Penguin as the publisher. I wore the book out and am glad to have a fresh copy in ebook form. Those who love the beauty of the English language and its ability to describe details until one can almost literally see the setting and characteristics of the people and setting will love this book. I like reading sections over and over. Those who like a good plot, a good story with redemptive quality will be satisfied too, because the book also has all these qualities.
